feelings are important
on 24 September 2011
I chose this book as I have a 4 year old daughter who has alot of pent up emotion, primarily anger, so I invested in a book that would benefit her and myself as a parent.
I found this book very helpful to a degree, though one of the tips was to take a walk, and due to the fact that we live in a flat and my daughter is only 4, she cannot exactly get up and 'take a walk.'
I am trying to teach her to squeeze her pillow when she feels angry and to count to ten which is mentioned in the book, but explaining this to a 4year old in essence she takes it as more of a game. I wouldnt recommend this book for children under the age of 5 really, though the illustrations are good to relate to and talk through with my daughter.
